Really nice, peaceful experience. I did a lot of research before going to an owl cafe as I was concerned for the animals' welfare. This owl "cafe" clearly prioritised the owls while still making the experience enjoyable for the humans as well! Not that there's no food or drink but the experience is WELL worth it if you can get in (make sure to book in advance). Loved it!

Awesome experience

The Owl Carers (?) were both very friendly and made us feel welcome with the owls. And it was real quality time. Opportunity to touch them, photo-ops, smaller ones will sit on the arm, shoulder, or in the hair, while larger owls sit on an leather glove – some even come gliding in for a landing. Owls were treated with respect and care. Great stuff.

Despite being called a cafe, there are no food or drinks. However it is an amazing experience. The staff are knowledgeable and very polite. There are lots of owls of many different species, large and small. You can take lots of pictures, just no flash. You even get to hold the owls!
